Greg Larkin: If You’re Not Pissing People Off, You’re Not Innovating

“We’re in a disruption diaspora. The cost of not innovating has never been higher in human history and they’re not getting any lower.” — Greg Larkin

 

SHOW NOTE.

Greg Larkin

We’re kicking off the Fall, pumpkin spice season with a spicy conversation between Charlie and this week’s guest, Greg Larkin (best-Selling Author, This Might Get Me Fired, faculty at Singularity University, guest lecturer, Columbia Business School, and self-professed “innovation punk”).

Warning: this conversation might piss you off and get you fired! Charlie and Greg explore the boundaries of what it means to innovate within the confines of a restrictive system (like enterprise companies) and  as an outlier, renegade entrepreneur disrupting old systems (pleasure, pain and everything in between). They discuss how the pandemic will shape the next era of disruptors and why it won’t be led by the atypical founders Silicon Valley still worships (young, college-drop out kids) and why companies will bleed the next generation of disruptive entrepreneurs from within their ranks over the next 5-10 years, during the greatest transfer of wealth in human history.

They touch on how their pre-Guilliani, New York City roots and Gen-X “chip on the shoulder” attitudes proved to be crucial ingredients in learning how to embrace non-comformity at an early age and how Greg used this advantage to make bold predictions (the 2008 housing market crash), build disruptive products, and help other would-be entrepreneurs to unleash their inner-badass.

‘Nuff said. Enjoy the show!
